    I acquired a 6.5x47 in some trading. The original owner had it loaded at 2700 fps. So I wanted to get to the 2900 node. I found that 41.0 of H4350 with the 130 VLD yielded me with a velocity of 2875 fps and accuracy in 3 different days of testing at 500 yards were 1.4” 1.3” and finally 1.2”
    I honestly feel the 1.2” would had been smaller as I had reworked the trigger and pulled my second shot before I was ready.
    Anyhow just curious as to what you guys are loading at.

    I run 42.2 gr of H4350 in my 6.5x47 with 130 Berger hunting. Gives me 2980 fps out of a 8 twist 26” Broughton. No pressure in my rifle. Work up to this.

    Forget the load but I used RL17 with the 130 VLDs in a #3 Brux. For a hunting gun the accuracy is good to 700 yds.
    IIRC, MV was 2900 or 2950.

    I’m running a berger 140 hyb in a 30” open rifle with 40.0 grains H4350 and it yielding 2800 fps with a 5 fps extreme spread. It’s a shooter...

    Just 4 shots. I don’t have many of the VLD hunters so I’m trying to be stingy.
    Barrel is right at 26.5” 8 Twist Krieger

    130 Berger VLD Hunting, ccI-450, Varget, a match made in heaven. Coyotes are not very happy with this load. Lol. :D:D
